Off the Rails: Prices up from last week’s Lismore sale
AT THE Lismore Saleyards on Tuesday, 280 cattle were sold.
There was a good yarding of vealers and prices increased on last week's good sale.
Vealers weighing in the 200 to 260kg range sold from $2.90 to $3.20/kg.
Ron Durheim's line of Limousin X sold for $3.20/kg and returned $757.
Gavin Robb's outstanding Speckled Park yearling sold for $3.08/kg and returned $1371.
Weaner steers sold exceptionally well.
Angus steers topped at $3.56/kg and returned $680. Heavy weaners sold from $820 to $950.
The cow market was solid but failed to reach the heights of last year.
Once again Alstonville dairyman Gavin Robb topped the day with an Aussie Red X cow weighing 775 kg selling for $2.26, $1753.
Don't forget Saturday's Store Sale.
Another good yarding of steers, heifers, cows with calves and a handful of bulls will be on offer.
